Red Crochet Fat Bottom Bag

Hello,

I saw this fat bottom bag on Pinterest a while ago.  I don't carry large purse. However, the original bag was a little small even for me.  So I made mine a little bigger.

I used one skein of the Red Heart Super Saver.  I started the bag almost double the original pattern.  I started with 30 hdc, 10 stitches for the center and 10 stitches on each size where the increases were being made.

I don't like the handles because they are stretching already and I just used a few times.  I have an idea of how to fix the handles.  I will share that next time.

You can see the original bag here.
Lining tutorial here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

This looks beautiful, Helen. I love the flower and leaves. Let me know if you find a way that the handles don't stretch. I may have to order one!
